Weekly Sheet: 9/4 - 9/9

posted Sep 5, 2012, 11:52 AM by Eric Drew
Dear Whalers,

This Saturday is our first public performance of the year, and I hope our successful start to the marching band season will carry through to the challenges that this week will bring.  Our first public performance, first days of school for freshman and returning upperclassmen, and first football game of the year are all exciting events, and will present their own challenges and rewards in our progress toward making this a great fall season.

For Saturday, please be aware that students will have time to eat lunch (they must bring their own) after we load the truck at 11:15.  Also, the band t-shirts that we will distribute to students are not done at the printers' yet, so students have to find their own black t-shirts and black socks to wear under their uniforms on Saturday.  Remember to wear sunblock and bring plenty of water because we will be rehearsing outside in the morning and then playing in full uniform at the game in the afternoon.

Thank you all for your hard work so far this year, and I look forward to our continuing success as the season progresses.  On Saturday, let's all put our best foot forward and prove to everyone at the football game that we are truly the Sound and Spirit of New Bedford.  Come ready to cheer loud and play your best!  Go Whalers!

Yours in music,
Mr. Eric Drew
